Representative Stephanie Murphy (D, Fla.) is retiring, but she is not done just yet.
The criticism seems to be part warning and part wake-up-call as the Representative slammed leaders in the party for the shift to progressive ideals and the party’s decision to ignore the moderates.
Murphy says that leaders are using progressive groups to attack the moderates in the party. Murphy is a co-chair of the moderate Democrat Blue Dog Coalition, pointed to her experiences after voting for stronger prison sentences for illegal immigrant caught re-entering the country and for her lack of support of the Build Back Better spending package in the House.
Interestingly, Murphy slammed the “squad” claiming that they are creating a toxic environment of Democrat infighting and disappointing Americans by promising unicorns and failing to deliver. This failure is causing disappointment and anger towards the Democrats.
